If you can not wait until November 6, when the long-awaited of Alexander Wang for H & M collection will be released, you can get an idea of the style of the collection to have at least something to dream of. The H & M shared through their social media photos from the collection of Wang, revealing to us the so athletic and minimalist style that Wang’s creations are expected to have , like the dark colour palette that has been used.
Although we would like the preview to also include a garment, the photo that H & M that has chosen to share with us illustrates a keychain with boxing gloves. And who knows maybe the next teaser will show us a little more. Stay tuned…
“We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard’s view and space captures the city,” explained a spokesperson for the quintessentially French house.
H&M announced yesterday during an event at the Coachella Music Festival that their next designer collaboration will be with Alexander Wang. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M.

The Rihanna Effect
“I never wanted to be famous. I just wanted my music to be heard all over the world.”
Third time’s a charm! A smiling Rihanna covers Vogue‘s March 2014 issue for her third time ever gracing the front of fashion’s Bible.

Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, who has Rihanna starring in his spring ad campaign, showed what amounted to an entire Rihanna wardrobe on his runway: baseball jackets worn with sheer tops and skinny houndstooth pants; eighties-inspired denim minidresses cinched at the waist. Tom Ford’s bejeweled teeny-tiny dresses and thigh-high gladiator sandals said Rihanna loud and clear.
